Relationship Issues

All types of relationship have issues that need constant review by both partners. Some issues can be resolved with cooperation and understanding of both partners, alone, or via professional help e.g. counseling and medication.


Lack of sexual satisfaction

Sex is important in all types of relationships and lack of it can drive partners apart. If one partner has a higher sex drive than the other, one may end up being sexually dissatisfied. Talking about it e.g. as to why you are not able to satisfy your partner is important. You may be tired, sick, stressed etc

Sexual orientations may also drive a wedge between couples. One couple may like oral sex or BDSM, while the other feels that it is not good for him or her.

Talking out a sexual dissatisfaction case normally works out for most couples. Where all communication fails, seeking professional counseling is also a better approach rather than quitting altogether.

Sexual difficulties

They may be either emotional or physical. Over thinking about how you need to satisfy your partner may result in accomplishing the opposite. Some past unresolved issues e.g. rape may also bring about sexual difficulties where one does not feel free with his partner.

Physical difficulties may be in the form of premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation, which may also be induced by psychological reasons.

Sexual mismatch e.g. smaller penis for the vagina or the opposite or big vagina for the penis or the opposite may also bring about sexual difficulties. Penis enlargement is still controversial but possible with due diligence and patience, and addressing a big vagina may be via one of the several vaginal enhancement measures e.g. kegels.

A lot of women also complain of pain during sex because of lack of sufficient arousal resulting in penetration where the vagina is still not open enough to receive a penis, or not wet enough to allow thrusting.

If sexual difficulty persists, it is always good to consult a doctor about it.

Unmet emotional needs

These may be lack of attention, lack of closeness, lack of intimacy which makes partners grow emotionally apart.  This may be also as a result of character and behavioral differences among couples e.g. where an introvert is dating or married to an extrovert. Communicating your needs openly normally solves this problem almost immediately.


A good amount of jealousy is available in all forms of relationships but going overboard may harm a relationship. Being too jealous to an extent of demanding where your partner is all the time, with who, what is he/she doing, stalking him/her both online and offline, tapping his/her communications, etc may indicate that the relationship has an unresolved problem.

Being open and honest with your partner normally solves this issue with time.

Growing apart

People who stay long in relationships can grow apart due to lack of constant communication. You may with time due to life dynamics realize that your destinies and goals are also drifting apart. Open communication also solves this problem with time.

Sit down together and lay down your future plans, expectations in the relationship and with each other, anticipations etc so that with time you can regularly have a point of reference when you feel like you are drifting away from each other.

All in all, resolving relationships’ issues demands honesty, openness, cooperation and praying together as couple of various religions. Seeking to solve relationships issues via counseling also works.
